One time, way back in college, I took a jazz appreciation class.
I knew nothing about music, at all, at the time.
But I was a fan of blues-based rock.
Rolling stones, Jimi Hendrix, Clapton, Led Zeppelin, etc.
And much to my surprise, I learned a lot of technical details about the music I already enjoyed.
The basic twelve bar blues, the call and response pattern.
And the class did what it advertised.
Understanding the structure of music actually led me to a deeper appreciation of music.
But one “area” of Jazz that we studied was a weird period in American jazz history.
Where a bunch of dudes would get together and just play whatever they felt.
No key signature, no rhythm, just a bunch of dudes playing whatever they felt like playing.
This was during a very experimental period during the mid sixties.
Needless to say those guys didn’t sell a lot of records.
Music has been around for a long, long time.
And we humans very much like music with a structure.
Way back in ancient Greece, the Pythagoreans were experimenting around with different sounds.
There actually was a “cult” of Pythagoras, a cult of numbers.
Not One Guy
We’re taught that there was a dude named Pythagoras who came up with the right triangle rule.
But historians believe it may have been a bunch of number worshipping guys.
Anyhow, another thing they discovered besides that right triangle rule was how different lengths of strings sounded good.
Lengths of one, three, and five, when all vibrated together just sounded “right.”
If you take a regular instrument, there is the “main” note played.
Like on a violin.
An A4 note, for example, vibrates at 440 Hz.
But a just a pure wave at 440 Hz doesn’t sound so good.
But when you play that note just above the opening on a hollowed out piece of wood, it creates a whole bunch of other notes that are related to that 440 Hz.
The internal chamber of the violin creates the “timbre.”
And throughout history, guys like Stradivarius made perfectly constructed, “resonance” chambers to create absolutely beautiful sounding instruments.
Even if you’re a hillbilly playing in a hillbilly garage band, you can put together a bunch of stuff to create “resonance” in your sounds.
You don’t need an education, or know anything about music or mathematics to know how to do this.
As the Pythagoreans figured out, we all have an inner instinct to figure out what sounds beautiful and what doesn’t.
And it’s no mistake, when we humans meet other humans we use words that reference music.
Like “vibing” with somebody.
Or when a guy meets a girl and tells her that they are going to “make beautiful music together.”
Resonance is a truly beautiful thing.
And you can find it everywhere.
Best of all, between two people who are vibing really well.
